HD Trike front tire

#1 Unread post by tkshifl »

Is there a reason that HD puts a motorcycle-style front tire on their trike and automotive-style tires on the rear? I'd like to put an auto-style front tire on my trike so I have a bigger contact patch between the rubber and the road.

Hello Tom , and welcome to the forum. Let's see a picture of your trike.
People say I'm stupid and apathetic. I don't know what that means, and I don't care.
Always wear a helmet, eye protection, and protective clothing. Never ride under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
